A chilling tale of murder and deception - from acclaimed YA author Helen Grant
Seventeen-year-old Veerle is bored with life in suburban Brussels. But a chance encounter with a hidden society, whose members illegally break into unoccupied buildings around the city, soon opens up a whole new world of excitement - and danger.
When one of the society's founding members disappears, Veerle suspects foul play. But nothing can prepare her for the horror that is about to unfold when an old foe emerges from the shadows... No one is safe, and The Hunter will strike again...
“After her powerful debut, The Vanishing of Katharina Linden, Grant has established herself as a major talent in YA fiction and this menacing story of stalking and murder simply confirms that... Grant builds characters and tension with smooth confidence, and her dialogue is fresh and contemporary. The whole package adds up to the compulsive first adventure in a trilogy’”

“Silent Saturday is another great book from Helen Grant, who keeps getting better and better with each book. If you enjoy YA thrillers then Silent Saturday – as for that matter her previous three books – comes highly recommended.”

“I loved Silent Saturday. I also loved Helen Grant’s earlier German novels, but something tells me I love this one even more. Silent Saturday is the first of Helen’s new Belgian trilogy, and if a horror thriller can be described as comfortable, then this is it . . . Go find a sofa to hide behind. Not that it will help, but you’ll be under the impression that you’re in control.”
“Grant writes with a fierce intelligence and sympathy for adolescents”
Amanda Craig, Guardian
“It had me hooked from the very start - Helen Grant's prose is beautifully spare, not a word wasted but still deliciously elegant and descriptive”
